Peanut Leaf Scorch

Posted by romeethredge on June 12, 2014

Peanut Leaf Scorch is showing up, but is nothing to be concerned about.

 Leptosphaerulina crassiaca is the causal organism of Peanut Leaf Scorch. We’re seeing some of this now. This was in a field of Tiftguards variety peanuts that had Cruiser Max seed treatment, so we knew it was not Thimet burn.  Dr Bob Kemerait, UGA Extension Plant Pathologist, says it causes some leaf symptoms but does not cause yield loss in peanut. Our normal fungicides used in peanut probably help with this as well.
